Eagles Acquire DE/OLB Antwan Barnes From Ravens

The Eagles made another trade today picking up 25-year-old DE/OLB Antwan Barnes from the Baltimore Ravens. Barnes was originally a fourth round pick of the Ravens back in 2007.

Barnes is 6-1, 251 pounds and according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will play defensive end.

ESPN is reporting the Eagles gave up a 7th round pick for Barnes. For what it's worth, Ravens fans were high on Barnes and feel a 7th rounder was very little to give up.

After hearing about the trade, Barnes twittered

"Woooooooo........I had a good run in Baltimore......thank everyone for your support......its a new beginning and I'm ready to be a eagle..."
